  1. Can I have a preview, please?

    Also, could you look into a bundle purchase price discount, I’m looking at getting this and the two redhat system admins book, would be nice to get a discount.


    Fantastic blog BTW been following you for years.

  2. Hello Ravi,

    First of all, let me thank you for the good work. I’m just at the beginning of the book and it’s very clear and simple!

    Now let me help you with some issue I’ve encountered while following the book:

    On page 15 the command for listing the host in /etc/ansible/hosts is ansible all -i hosts --list-hosts but if I run this Ansible 2.9.15 searches the hosts file in /home/$user folder.

    I changed it with ansible all -i /etc/ansible/hosts –list-hosts and it read all the hosts inserted in the inventory file.

    Am I doing something wrong?

      • Thanks, I think that is the clue :)

        Oh just another thing (Ye I know I’m boring ^^):

        Starting from Chapter 3 in the examples are using different ip addresses and the installation example for webserver is for centos, but at the beginning of the guide, the webserver is Debian.
        It’s a little confuse (nothing tragic) :)

  3. Hi Ravi,

    This is only for exam preparation? Or it covers everything on ansible for a sysadmin?

    Basically, I don’t want to give an exam – but I want to learn ansible and apply the learning in a corporate environment.

    • @Kazim,

      The Ansible books cover everything based on the exam objectives of RedHat, and is also useful for system administration, as this book covers everything from installation, configuration, and management of ansible.
